    As long as they always stay on a track, they should be good... Unless you have to stop or something...

    Yeah, i run a 20 spoke Bontrager racelite front wheel that i had built (found the hub and rim seperately for cheap) and its flexy as hell. That wheelset just looks scary.

    I have 20 blades running radial on the front and a disk on the back of my Raleigh Grand Prix SS.
    Looks pimp

    My front wheel is 16 spoke and, while I love it, I'll be the first to admit that it does flex like mad sometimes. Never disconcertingly so, but definitely enough to notice.
